This was a most interesting tour. Our guide had excellent knowledge of the history of Lithuania and the history regarding the Hill of Crosses. She was most informative. You can put your own cross amongst the hundreds of thousands there and you can walk all around savour the peace and serenity of the area. Well worth the drive through the countryside.
Me and my friend went on this trip this weekend and had a wonderful time. The guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out things along the road as well as telling us all about the history of the places we went to.
I thought it was great. The Hill of Crosses is the of course the point of the trip, but we also stopped in a beautiful forest with numerous wooden crosses and were told of the bravery of amazing people and priests.
The day tour to the Hill of Crosses is a very special one. The place is amazing and this option is something I highly recommend. Our guide Inga is very friendly, knowledgeable and sharing a lot of interesting information. Additionally she is a great driver which for this tour is very important.
I booked the tour for another day and it was going to be cancelled as I was the only one who had booked it. The company organizing the tour did an excellent job as there was another traveller who had booked the tour for another close day which for me was not possible. So they communicated with both of us and found a solution to arrange the tour on a date both of us can do it. A big thank you for the organization and for the wonderful guide Inga!
